Bingo. Sure, I miss the concerts and Jerry's playing, but as I age I find myself missing the human part of it all; the gathering before shows in the parking lot, trading stories, some true and some seriously embellished, laughing, perhaps sucking down some nitrous or some other things, meeting new best friends, catching up with old ones and just "being" in a group of people who were all there for the exact same reason. Well, other than the later years when many were there simply to see if they could set a record for the most chemical substances ingested in a set period of time and then expel gastric effluvium on other peoples footwear. This place for me is priceless not just for the music, but almost moreso for the people. The connections I've made over the years while sitting on the back of my old Olds station wagon or taking part in an online listening party have done more for my soul than most other things in life (wife and kids not withstanding). Kudos to all of you for just showing up, even if you don't have much to say; your presence here speaks volumes.

As I was sayin to Rob, Arb, & elb, this place just keeps getting warmer & fuzzier...

And, yup--you'll never know how much more it means to me in the spirit of "just showing up"...sometimes, that's a real accomplishment.

That "warmer and fuzzier" feeling is probably the result of a diminished commitment to personal grooming, but lets not split hairs.
